Dr. Elaine Lam's Ratings
I was so nervous about getting surgery on my gum, having never had surgery before. My tooth was so damaged she had to go through the gum to fix the root canal. Dr. Lam was friendly, professional, calm, confident, gentle, helpful and did a amazing job. Can surgery be pain free and stress free? She made it just that! I'm so impressed! Everyone else's reviews are so true, I'm so thankful for Dr. Lam!

Dr.Lam is empathetic, personable, patient and very sweet. She is very gentle when doing root canals and very professional. The staff are also very well mannered and helpful. I've had a nightmare dental situation going on for months now, and dr.lam has been very understanding about my situation. She discusses everything in detail and is very honest in terms of what should be done. I would highly recommend her. What a sweet woman. She has obviously worked very hard to get to the level she is at and its nice to know theres successful down to earth people like dr.lam in the world :)
Dr Lam did my root canal 4 years ago and was able to save my back tooth even though it was very badly infected. The same tooth now, has undergone some trauma from issues that I’ve had with two crowns put on by several different dentists. I searched out Dr Lam again and found that she has opened a new practice downtown. She uses the newest technology in 3D imaging and was able to pinpoint exactly why there is fast and severe bone loss. She was on time, courteous, and empathetically answered all of my many, many questions. She is an expert at root canals and gives realistic options. A bonus is, she does not gauge you for your money, as I’ve noticed that some do. I would most definitely go back to Dr Lam anytime I need a root canal or microsurgery and highly recommend her to everyone.
Very pleasant overall exprience all things considered (root canal therapy). Outstanding bedside manner; seems like she knows what she is doing. A good choice for nervous patients like myself. You can watch netflix on the TV on the ceiling. Dr. Lam is very gentle with your mouth, unlike some other dentists I have had.
My tooth had been bothering me for some time. I was trying to ignore it, but it blew up into a raging toothache. I've never experienced anything so bad before. It serves me right for waiting so long, but I was scared from all the horror stories my friends had told me about root canals, not to mention visiting the dentist makes me nervous. I went to a my dentist and he referred me to Dr. Lam. I'm glad to say that Dr. Lam proved all my friends WRONG. Dr. Lam was very caring and took the time to make me feel comfortable and manage my anxiety. The experience was extremely smooth and I had relief as soon as the freezing wore off. Their office is brand new and state of the art. All the staff are very professional and friendly. I have nothing, but rave reviews about this office.
All I can say is wow. My visit to Dr. Lam's office was the best experience I have ever had at a dental office. I called my own dentist's emergency number on the weekend with a massive toothache. He referred me right away to Dr. Lam. She insisted that she see me immediately instead of waiting until Monday. I can't believe she opened up the office just for me on a Sunday morning but she did. Her office is very modern with more fancy gizmos than I can count. She was incredibly professional and caring and made the whole appointment go very smoothly for this self confessed coward. When the freezing finally wore off, I felt so much better! I can't imagine what it would been like to wait until Monday. And to top if all off, Dr. Lam called me that night to check how I was doing! You couldn't ask for more from a dentist. She has my unconditional recommendation.
I had some pain that began Friday night. I wasn't sure if it was my ear, head, gums or tooth. By the time it was Sunday night, it was just unbearable and I pinned down the source to my left molar. I called Dr. Elaine's office first thing Monday morning to try to get an appointment ASAP. Her staff is very professional, compassionate and understanding. They booked me for treatment at 12:00pm on the same day! Dr. Lam is extremely helpful, compassionate, above all, an expert in dealing with situations like this. She was able to determine the cause and did a root canal on me. I felt tremendously better right after the treatment. She also called me around 7pm that night just to check up on me. I can't say how pleased I am with her dedication and service and her staff is just awesome. She's definitely someone I'd recommend a million times over!
